Leyton Orient midfielder Jobi McAnuff will feature for Jamaica in the Caribbean Cup next month.

The 32-year-old will take his place in the Reggae Boyz team for the tournament, which takes place in Jamaica between November 11-19.

They are due to face Martinique on the opening day, before matches against Antigua & Barbuda and Haiti on November 13 and 15 respectively, with the final of the tournament on November 17.

That means the former Reading and West Ham United midfielder is likely to miss the O’s FA Cup game at Oldham Athletic, while also being absent for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy fixture at Brisbane Road against Northampton Town.

McAnuff will miss out again at Gillingham on November 15, before flying home on November 19 ahead of the O’s home game with Crewe Alexandra three days later.
